“Victorian Radicals: Dystopia and Utopia” at The Winter Show

Saturday, January 25
4:30 – 5:30PM

Park Avenue Armory
643 Park Avenue
New York, NY



The AFA is pleased to partner with The Winter Show for a special lecture by Dr. Tim Barringer, Chair and Paul Mellon Professor, Department of the History of Art, Yale University and co-curator of the AFA exhibition Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts & Crafts Movement.

This lecture, based on the arguments of Victorian Radicals, explains how artists, designers and critics in 19th-century Britain rejected industrialization and the desecration of the environment in the modern city. Instead, designers led by William Morris offered a return to the hand-made and to natural materials, while the Pre-Raphaelites and their followers pursued a rigorous realism inspired by early Italian and Flemish painting. Towards the end of the century, the Arts & Crafts Movement embraced communitarian ideals, and women artists emerged as key contributors. Victorian Radicals opens at Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, CT on February 13, 2020.

*AFA Members receive discounted Daily Admission Tickets with special promo code. 
Admission to the lecture is complimentary with fair passes; seating is on a first-come basis.
